In your case the only thing I would advise would be to buy a NO product or even a little creatine ! Your updated picture looks ok but as you agree your a long way from bulding quality muscle mass. TONE up first ... you still have amples of weight to lose ! Your pictures before you stopped training are your goal so when you get to that stage maybe then try something in the line of supplements to help your bulking stage ! To me it kinda looks like your attempting to bulk before you have a good starting frame.
You are trying to walk before you can crawl ! ... Aim on losing the gut and tone the arms ! All can be done perfectly natural and quick. Good luck
I havent been on here since my last post about 6 months ago.. sorry I havent updated... and you are 100% right in everything you said... when I started I thought suppliments were the answer... but the longer I trained the more I realised the right food and just whey, omega 3, and a multivit is all i needed.
I am looking back and I am again sorry I wrote about a wonder drug! It wasnt at all.. I can tell you it was something I tried before and I really believed it was the reaosn I got in such good shape.. but its all about the training and diet that does that!
The supplients I didnt mention was by a company called... Cybergenetics and it isnt illegal...my many varied types of suppliments in a kind of ' bundle' pack that you take as a course....and I did use the whole course and I also used the next course they do as well.. but i dont recommend it now! Now I know better! Dont waste your money on any wonder suppliments... its a waste of money. The only ones you need are the ones I mentioned..in my opinion. I wouldnt ever take steriods...but nothing agaisnt anyone that does.. its there body.
Anyways.. my end of year pic it was taken in October but i looked very much the same in Nov... I did train hard...and worked out consistently..and gave it my full attention...I stayed on track and learned a lot by my own mistakes.. and this is how I looked by 8 months... (as I stopped training end of Nov...but will start again this month)
Also.. Evan... I was 41" belly and I went all the way down to 31"! I have since gone up again to 33" after Xmas.. but I enjoyed the break from the diet over xmas.. ;)
All the best in your training this year everyone.
